My mother has been petitioning for over a year to have speed bumps installed along that stretch. Just about every neighbor from Clara Barton High school down to the gas station on Myrtle Street signed the petition. DOT and MTA told her no because it would slow traffic down and it was still considered a bus route. Letitia said she would help to have then installed so the accident rate would go down. Now they(including Letitia) want to create a single lane to help slow traffic. Who do they think they are fooling. Traffic will not slow down. They will still speed down Classon. The only way to stop the speeding is to install the speed bumps.
I'm not sure that's accurate. Speed bumps have mixed results. Single lanes have done well on other streets, such as DeKalb Avenue, or simply reducing lanes (such as on PPW)
